OP  11/27/11 2:53:34 PM#1

Hello

 

I would love to buy this game and i see lot of good stuff like voice acting etc.. BUT! The thing is i just absolytely hate the art style, it looks like a cartoon my kid is watching from tv and he is 5 years old. Also, the graphics are very poor in general too. I really don't understand why they decided to go with this art style and so bad graphics and don't give me it''s an mmo so graphics need to suck, this is not the case i played AOC and many other mmo's that has fine graphics.

 

So point is, the game looks like shit and i wount be buying it. No matter how good the actual game play would be, it wount change the fact that i cannot immerse my self to the game character when it looks like that. Too bad, i hope they change it for swtor 2, so i get to enjoy it too.

 

To those that are going to play, i hope you enjoy it. I just had to vent cause i really hate the art style.

 

Take care

I can relate. I get turned off immediately when I see those Anime looking games.  They drive me nuts.  Luckily I like SWTOR.

They are coming for you!

I'm not really judgmental about graphics but I can see why the graphics would turn you off.

The style of the game doesn't bother me, but it has some annoying technical issues, like the shadows have a LOT of aliasing on high settings.

Are you team Azeroth, team Tyria, or team Jacob?

I am as far from a SWTOR apologist as you'll ever find but I would play this art style and graphics over the Asian MMO glitzy, Anime, Manga style they produce.  I couldnt stand the graphics of FFXI, Aion or Lineage 2.

For me, the graphics and art style are just on the edge of unplayable. I don't like them very much, but they don't ruin the game for me. I can see myself either getting used to them in the long run though. I currently don't plan to play the game more than half a year, so it doesn't bother me as much.

For the people who wish to play longer, I would imagine one would get tired?

I would never play a game just because it  looks pretty, I perfer game play over graphics any day of the week, the graphics and animations where fine, to many people want realistic , and they will cry when there computer can't handle it.

Can I say AOC, FF14..... If you want pretty games there you go.. Zero game play though, glad they spent more money on game play, and they did the graphics a bit lower on purpose they knew there fan base would not be able to afford high end and thats a fact they have talked about it many times. When I went to E3, thats the first thing they said, so I don't understand people.

 

When AOC release so many complained there machine could not handle it, so I couldn't imagine if they went out for this, they would get like 20k subs instead... Think people think.

The graphics where kinda good, i was expecting much worse when i saw some clips in youtube.

I ran SW on max and was suprised it looked that good.

 

The starter zone was meh for Sith warrior but when i went to the Kaas zone i was stunned by its graphics.

Hmm as a veteran with 2 years in age of conan i would say it had the best combat system i have played in ANY game, and prior to 1.5 patch it had the best pvp in any MMO . So your argument about the game play is simply false. Also, been playing MMO's since 1998, so i have seen quite a few.

I second the notion I don't think people realize how dificult it is to render photorealistic graphics. I think they are going for the WoW "playable on any machine" approach and I agree with them on that. I know if they made their graphics more "realistic" people would complain about the requirements being too high.

SWTOR has quite high specs for an mmo.

Many people complained about the high specs you need to play it properly.

 

But people need to understand that a decent PC needs upgraded once in awhile and if you dont do that you cant realy blame game studio''s to keep a medium to higher standard on their games.

 What's false about his statement? him prefering something else then what you like ? That's absurd i tell you !

We should all like AOC because according to you it has/had the best pvp and combat system and we all know we can't have our own oppinion since you have been playing since 1998.

I have been so utterly disappointed by games with good graphics example AOC and FFXIV that i don't care for graphics anymore. And i am not botheerd by art style of SWTOR since it is true to KOTOR series.

I believe in life before death... So dont forget to enjoy it while you still can.

the artchoice is timeless, and it will look and feel exactly the same in 5 years.

If you manually set for 16x AA and 8x AF, with all settings high, performance is still good, while the game world starts to shine...

 

In future they should add environmental effects, like fog, rain, snow, lightning and update the lighting part of the engine to create more athmosphere. Then the game is set to survive the next decade.

Pink, it's like red but not quite.

Guys, it's a fair cop.  Art style preference is entirely personal.

There's really nothing you can do to alter a feeling that completely subjective, except to wish him luck in his search for something else.

Self-pity imprisons us in the walls of our own self-absorption. The whole world shrinks down to the size of our problem, and the more we dwell on it, the smaller we are and the larger the problem seems to grow.

for the record i love the art style. The style tor chose holds up longer then realistic graphics do. I dont understand why people have an issue with stylized graphics for me they look and play great.

Thats my taste though i love stylized graphics any day . I can understand if u dont like stylized graphics not like tors but then again we hav eknown for what 2 yrs they were using the graphics they are. 

So i dont understand why people are so upset by it this late in the game when u knew what htey were going with all along.

I agree all those high end photo realistic graphics just do not age well. We will see how many will still gush over AOC and FFXIV in another 5 to 6 years.

Tough its still sad that there is no Ultra setting with a much higher quallity textures, its easy to downgrade texture quallity for lower settings, its almost impossible to upgrade textures after game release.
